Saying “No”

by Patrick Liew on June 13, 2011

Recently, I went to meet a client. He wanted me to market some of his properties.

A short while into the discussion, I said, ” Mr Client (not his name, of course), as much as I love to work for you, I don’t think I can do a good job in this case.

“Please look for a better person.”

Later, we spent most part of the meeting talking generally about life. I believed we parted as friends, and that he respected me for my blunt honesty.

Years ago, I realized there are times when I should say, “No”. I should do it even if it caused me to lose some clients and earned less money.

If I forced myself to say “Yes” – when I cannot do a proper job, it would cause me a lot more troubles. It was simply not worth it.

I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

Life is FUNtastic!


Question: How can we learn to say “No”?
